Well, I had been on the search for a new 3g for a while now, having my wrecked se-i sitting in the garage sucks, and I needed to find a replacement, but wanted something with a good body.
After getting screwed over on one deal, flying out to Vancouver, and the idiot who I was supposed to buy the car from neglected to call me the night before when the alternator siezed up and the car had a couple other issues. I walked away from that deal pissed off, and flew back home.
Finally while browsing craigslist randomly one day, I found what looked like a really good car. 1988 ex-i, white, 5spd, 250,000kms, oem window visors, and the people had owned it since 1989.... Did a carproof report, never been in an accident, got more pictures... talked to the owners and decided to go for it. So saturday the 8th... I hopped on a plane to Abbotsford, got in a cab to Chilliwack (cab driver smelled really bad too! ) ... And after having a good look at the car, taking it for a spin... I decided to go for it. So, here she is:
Stopped off after about 3 hours or so of driving for some gas and food.
Well, the drive was quite interesting.... Was raining pretty good when I picked up the car, then got nice and sunny for pics... Then I hit a bit more rain, followed by hail, then more rain, a little bit of snow... followed by nice clear weather when I hit Alberta. As you can see here, driving through the mountains, they got a lot of snow this winter...
And finally home safe and sound... Chillin in my mess of a garage.
